New Arrival


I just traveled on southwest.  I attempted to watch movies but was unable to do so the wifi kept saying I needed to download a app.  Now that I'm at home I've attempted to locate the app and haven't been able to.  This is for free movies.  Does anyone have any idea what I should do before I travel again in two weeks?

You need to have the Southwest app! See more here.


I assume you were trying to watch on a tablet? You can install the tablet version of the app. I also think that the app “Airtime Player” is an alternative as well. 


Note that hat the app can be a little buggy (in my experience) when it comes to movies. If you are having issues, force close the app and try again.

You could also try to download the airtime player I find it easier than the Southwest app for movies and has worked just fine for me
